Abstract

The Nursing Professional Development Educator role includes that of change agent. Much of the literature addresses reaction to change rather than purposeful guidance of the process. This article describes the development of a planned change template. Distilled from change literature, experience in change management, and wisdom from the nuclear power industry, it can assist in avoiding some of the common pitfalls that thwart the success of change initiatives.
